Composite Materials: Science and Engineering by Krishan K. Chawla

By Krishan K. Chawla

The 3rd variation of Krishan Chawla's general textbook, Composite Materials, deals built-in and entirely up to date assurance of composite fabrics. The e-book specializes in the triad of processing, constitution, and homes, whereas supplying a well-balanced therapy of the fabrics technology and mechanics of composites.

In this variation of Composite Materials, revised and up-to-date all through, expanding use of composites in (especially aerospace and effort) and new advancements within the box are highlighted. there's a new bankruptcy on non-conventional composites, which covers polymer, steel and ceramic matrix nanocomposites, self-healing composites, self-reinforced composites, biocomposites and laminates made from metals and polymer matrix composites. The 3rd version, that includes all figures in colour, additionally comprises new solved examples and difficulties in addition to elevated assurance of:

  • Carbon/carbon brakes.
  • Composites for civilian plane and jet engines.
  • Second new release high-temperature superconducting composites.
  • Composites to be used in windmill blades.
  • WC/metal particulate composites.

Examples of useful functions in numerous fields are given in the course of the booklet, and wide references to the literature are supplied. The publication is meant to be used in graduate and upper-division undergraduate classes, and as a reference for the working towards engineers and researchers in and academia.

Example text

Two very different approaches have been taken to make high-modulus organic fibers. These are: 1. Process the conventional flexible-chain polymers in such a way that the internal structure takes a highly oriented and extended-chain arrangement. Structural modification of “conventional” polymers such as high-modulus polyethylene Fig. 26 Two types of molecular orientation: (a) oriented without high molecular extension and (b) oriented with high molecular extension [from Barham and Keller (1985), used with permission] was developed by choosing appropriate molecular weight distributions, followed by drawing at suitable temperatures to convert the original foldedchain structure into an oriented, extended chain structure.

The mesophase pitch-based carbon fibers show rather high modulus but low strength levels (2 GPa). Not unexpectedly, the HT-type carbon fibers show a much higher strain-to-failure value than the HM type. The mesophase pitch-based carbon fibers are used for reinforcement, while the isotropic pitch-based carbon fibers (very low modulus) are more frequently used as insulation and fillers. 4 compares the properties of some common carbon fibers and graphite monocrystal (Singer 1979). For high-temperature applications involving carbon fibers, it is important to take into account the variation of inherent oxidation resistance of carbon fibers with modulus.

Another form of carbon is Buckminster Fullerene (or Bucky ball), with a molecular composition of C60 or C70. One can also have carbon nanotubes, which are nothing but drawn out version of Buckyballs. Carbon in the graphitic form is highly anisotropic, with a theoretical Young’s modulus in the layer plane being equal to about 1,000 GPa, while that along the c-axis is equal to about 35 GPa. The graphite structure (Fig. 14a) has a very dense packing in the layer planes. The lattice structure is shown more clearly with only lattice planes in Fig.
